Members of Taziki’s Mediterranean Café Arkansas staff to participate in ‘No-Shave November’

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Several staff members of Taziki's Mediterranean Café at their locations throughout Arkansas in North Little Rock, Bentonville, Fayetteville, Conway and Little Rock have decided to participate in ‘No-Shave November,’ a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness.

The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing hair, which many cancer patients lose. Participants are encouraged to donate the money they would typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives and aid those fighting the battle.

Taziki’s has its own ‘team’ page on No-Shave November’s website, where donations can be made to support these efforts.
